You may have heard that two residents of Sharon Springs will be tying the knot this Friday! Since I won’t be able to attend their wedding, I want to use this week’s edition of the column to wish Brent and Josh the most heartfelt congratulations. These guys have been inspirational to me right from the start. It wasn’t long after they acquired the Beekman that I began to document their journey from city to country on my blog. With each post and each new venture they undertook I was more impressed by their vision and determination and, especially, their humility and kindness. We became friends and they have been helpful to me in ways that I cannot adequately express. Their honesty with each other and their commitment to making it work – to building a life together – is what really resonates so strongly about their love. I am so thrilled that they are marrying in the place they most love on earth, surrounded by the beauty of the land and the love and support of so many. I will be thinking of them on Friday, and I know many of you will be too.
Below are five beautiful wedding cakes to feast your eyes on – from the simple to the more elaborate – as we wish Brent and Josh our best for their special day. (I quite like the idea of using multiple smaller cakes or cupcakes to broaden the spectrum of flavors.)
Which cake would you choose?
